ARTBA works in coordination with a variety of industry, business and labor groups to push the pro-transportation investment message in the Nation’s Capital and around the country.
The Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) is a group of 31 national associations and labor unions with a direct market interest in the federal transportation programs. Created in 1996 and co-chaired by ARTBA and the Associated General Contractors of America, the TCC focuses on the federal budget and surface transportation program reauthorization debates. TCC members can be found in every congressional district and provide a vital service to their communities by helping to improve the efficiency and safety of our nation’s highway infrastructure.
ARTBA serves as vice chair of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-led national coalition called Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM), which is working to ensure the nation’s transportation infrastructure is improved to handle current and future demands. ATM represents transportation users and providers who are working together for a safer and more efficient transportation infrastructure system. The coalition promotes increased investment in infrastructure and fighting to streamline the burdensome approval process that significantly delays and even prevents critical transportation safety improvements.
Founded in 1971, The Road Information Program (TRIP) is a nonprofit organization that researches, evaluates and distributes economic and technical data on surface transportation issues. TRIP promotes transportation policies that relieve traffic congestion, improve road and bridge conditions, improve air quality, make surface travel safer and enhance economic productivity.
